Privacy Policy

1. What This Privacy Policy Covers

This policy covers how we will treat personal information that we may collect and receive, including information related to your use of the Congregation Ahavath Sholom website. Personal information is information about you that is personally identifiable like your name, address, email address, or phone number, and that is not otherwise publicly available.

2. Information Collection and Use

Congregation Ahavath Sholom collects personal information such as name, address, and e-mail address, when you knowingly provide it to us. We may collect personal information when you register with the Congregation Ahavath Sholom email list and when you use the website, particularly to make payments and/or register for events.

We also automatically receive and record information on our server logs from your browser, including your IP address, what type of operating system you are running, the identification code of cookies on your computer, and the pages you request.

We may use the information we collect about you to customize the content you see, assist your utilization of the website, fulfill your requests for services, contact you, provide information you have requested, conduct research, improve our website, and provide anonymous reporting.

We do not store credit card numbers on our servers. If you choose to save your information for ongoing payments, this payment information is stored in an encrypted manner by our credit card processor.

3. Information Sharing and Disclosure

We will not rent, sell, or share personal information about you with other non-affiliated people or nonaffiliated entities except to fulfill requests for services you’ve requested, when we have your permission, or under the following circumstances:

  • We provide the information to trusted partners who work on behalf of or with us under confidentiality agreements. These companies and other entities may use your personal information to help us communicate with you. However, these companies or entities will not have any independent right to share this information.
  • We respond to subpoenas, court orders, or legal process, or to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims. We believe it is necessary to share information in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of our terms of use, or as otherwise required by law.

4. Cookies

We may set and access small files, or cookies, on your computer. These allow us to continue your session’s activities securely. Most Web browsers allow users to exercise control over such files on their computers by erasing them, blocking them, or notifying the user when such a file is stored. Congregation Ahavath Sholom website visitors are asked to refer to their browser’s instructions to learn about those functions.

5. Confidentiality and Security

We limit access to personal information about you to employees and lay leaders who we believe reasonably need to come into contact with that information to provide products or services to you or in order to do their jobs.

We have physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with federal regulations to protect personal information about you.

6. Usage, Consent, and Changes

By using this website, you consent to the terms of this online privacy policy and to Congregation Ahavath Sholom’s processing of personal information for the purposes given above as well as those explained in specific instances where Congregation Ahavath Sholom collects personal information on the web.

Should the online privacy policy change, we intend to take every reasonable step to ensure that these changes are brought to your attention by posting all changes prominently on our website for a reasonable period of time.
